Ride & Stride Day

Supporting Britain’s Historic Churches

St Mary’s is supporting Ride & Stride Day 2021 on September 11th.

Ride & Stride is a sponsored event for cyclists, joggers, walkers and horse riders. Any mode of transport can be used as long as sponsors are happy; a couple of people have used vintage cars!

Money raised helps Northamptonshire Historic Churches Trust to continue supporting the marvellous churches across the county with essential repairs and improvements. Ride and Stride is an opportunity to raise money not only for the Trust but for your own church, as the trust returns 50% of the money to the church of choice for those participating.

Some participants challenge themselves to visit as many churches as they can by their chosen mode of transport. Others prefer a more leisurely approach, visiting fewer churches and taking more time at each. There is no age limit – it is a great family activity – and you plan your own route. Over 350 churches and chapels across Northamptonshire will be taking part.

St Mary’s church will be open from 10.00am to 4.00pm although others may open for longer or shorter.

Ride and Stride is a national initiative. You can find out about Ride and Stride in other counties here.
